June 9: Bicycle Crash Data Workshop and Hack Night

crash-allegheny

An evening of civic hacking on Thursday, June 9

With the recent release of 10 years of crash data in Allegheny County, a number of different organizations are interested in exploring traffic safety in our community. Please join us for an evening of civic hacking on June 9.

We’ll have a number of activities that will keep people of all skills and abilities engaged in the topic. We’re hoping to attract cyclists, walkers, and other transportation aficionados, writers, data analysts, data scientists, visualization experts, developers, information scientists, and those with an interest in public policy.

Activities include: 1. Working together to answer some of the most-important safety questions using crash and other data, 2. building tools to visualize the data and make our streets safer, and 3. learning more about the data itself to better-understand how to apply it to improve road safety.

Partners in the event include: Allegheny County, Bike Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon’s Traffic21 Institute, the City of Pittsburgh, Open Pittsburgh, and the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center at the University of Pittsburgh.

Food and drink for the event is sponsored by the Traffic 21 Institute, and is the second of several events in their Transportation Hack Night series.

Thursday, June 9, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Lawrenceville – 279 Fisk Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15201
